    I worked at Magna International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth (If you are politically savvy, and work hard). Magna is a great place to get experience!

    Cons

    The employee Charter is only followed when it benefits the company. HQ serves the Magna "Kool-Aid" and if it was executed at the group/division level it would be great! Unfortunately it is not and people are numbers. The extremely high turn over and back stabbing make Magna a stop along the way instead of the destination for a career

    Advice to Management

    Follow the Charter, invest in your people and listen to them.


  9. "Good Company"

    Pros

    There is the potential to move up quickly. Its very demanding and challenging. This is a pro in my opinion.

    The con can be the same. For your hard work you sometimes get more hard work. This is most places though.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a little more flexible in there work environment
